dualvar NUM, STRING Returns a scalar that has the value NUM in a numeric contex +t and the value STRING in a string context. $foo = dualvar 10, "Hello"; $num = $foo + 2; # 12 $str = $foo . " world"; # Hello world

      Well take it as clarification that there are no "string variables" but "scalar variables" with different slots.

      Perl is so magic that, easy answers are not always true...
